Wellbeing portal launched to help employers support staff during coronavirus crisis
Benefits specialists Secondsight and employee wellbeing experts Rightsteps have teamed up to provide a holistic wellbeing portal for businesses looking to safeguard their employees’ financial, mental and physical wellbeing.
The organisations have made this free to use for all their clients for the next three months, in order to enable employers to provide higher levels of support during the Coronavirus crisis.
The link between financial problems and mental health issues has been widely acknowledged, and during these turbulent times we’re experiencing, never has this been more real.
Benefits specialists Secondsight and employee wellbeing experts Rightsteps have come together to tackle these issues and help employers to support staff’s mental, physical and financial wellbeing, through a combined platform solution for ‘money, mind and body’.
The wellbeing portal will feature online information and guidance, with the aim of helping thousands of workers with mental, physical and financial wellbeing support, whilst promoting an open, supportive culture.
Written by experts in the field, the easy to use interactive platform will be available 24/7 on any device, and with a dedication to using language that explains complex matters in plain English.
Offering a range of topics from managing debt or creating healthy savings habits, to managing your mental health, overcoming sleep difficulties and developing a healthier lifestyle, the wellbeing platform will feature up to date, trusted and easily digestible information that has been developed by two regulated organisations.
Ian Bird, Director of Business Development at Secondsight, said: “It’s clear that there is not only a demand but a need for employers to be offering their people adequate support across all areas of wellbeing, especially during the coronavirus outbreak.
“Now more than ever employees are taking the strain to work from home during the crisis, and employers need every help they can get to manage wellbeing remotely, which is why we’re making this tool free to access for our entire client base.
“We’re working with Rightsteps to create a holistic solution to help improve employees’ overall wellbeing and make a positive impact on people’s lives; with information from trusted sources, available 24/7.”
David Lewis, Principal, Rightsteps said: “As wellbeing experts, we also know that when people are struggling with life’s challenges this can lead to financial and psychological difficulties. This is even more so with the impact of coronavirus, with many people struggling to maintain their psychological wellbeing at this time.
“Through our relationship with Secondsight we want to support employees to enjoy greater health and wellbeing.
“Bringing our expertise together will provide employees with immediate access to trusted information and guidance than can make a real difference to their lives.”
